DIY Coffee Scrub Recipes

Summer of Scrubs

Summer is the perfect time to try new things and to boost your beatitude and personal care routine with their designated artifacts. Whether we battle with aggressive hormones or not, we still break out from adult acne and we still sweat, ESPECIALLY in the summer. And products packed with chemicals, artificial ingredients, and harsh additives certainly don’t help us manage our pleasantly demented, indecisive skin. When the going gets tough, sometimes our simple daily cleanser just isn’t enough to fight our breakouts when dirt, sweat, and oil slide in so smoothly into your dm’s. Ugh. Like who invited you here? Say hello to the summer of scrubs! The beautiful thing about do-it-yourself scrubs is that you have complete control over what goes into your batch. You won’t even have to think about Regina George and her synthetic side chicks. The beauty in beauty care is freedom. The alternative to our skincare fix is spas which offer superior hydrating skin treatments, smoothing exfoliating scrubs for dry, dehydrated skin. But hello…? Time and money, where you at?! That brings me to my next perk which will be the possibilities in our freedom. Everyone has different skin types, sensitivities, preferences, and budgets for their skincare and that allows us to include scrubs for a variety of predilections. Not to mention the much more attractive price tag that comes with this little project.

Oh, what was that? Coffee first? You read my mind! I’ll take some!

Oh! While you’re at it, you might want to bring the entire pot with you if you don’t mind.

We may be needing it...
